Sean Astin on Covino and Rich Show

Sean was on the Covino and Rich Show on Sirius XM Radio today. From their recap:
You know him from Rudy, the Gooneys, Lord of the Rings, and more, Sean Astin joined us on the show to promote his new role as Raphael in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles! Hit him up at @SeanAstin and watch the Nickelodon premiere on September 29th. Sean also has a new political radio show on Toad Hop Network. He tells an anecdote on meeting President Bush and what a honor is was as a citizen to meet the President–even though it was Bush. Covino asked why Sean doesn’t run for office, and Sean tells humbling story of losing class Presidency in high school (womp womp womp, I would’ve voted for you, Sean). Now as Raphael in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, he’s “cool but rude” according to the theme song. Raphael is satirically drawn in tradition of the Thing or Hulk, and Sean has developed the role into something fresh, so be sure to watch. Covino’s mom called in at the end to comment on Sean’s mom’s performance (Patty Duke) in the Miracle Worker. What a talented family! Thanks for coming on the show Sean!
